Common issues with the driveline
With your driveline being a very essential component to the functionality of your commercial vehicle, it is essential to gain an understanding and recognize when it may be having issues. There are a few common issues with the driveline that you could experience in your commercial vehicle, but thankfully, with regular inspection and maintenance, you can most likely avoid these issues from occurring:
A lack of inspection of your driveline
Even a permanently lubed driveline still needs periodic inspection to prevent downtime or warranty issues. It is better to catch a problem or damage before it becomes worse.
Experience is key when it comes to operation of heavy on road equipment. However, nobody is perfect and accidents can happen out there. Popping the clutch or spinning the tires can wreak havoc, because when they catch, it creates a shock load that can result in either a fractured U-joint or driveline tube being twisted. This type of damage is visible and obvious to the repair technicians.
If the vehicle hits an object that is stationary
If the commercial vehicle that you are operating backlash up into a loading dock or hits a parking pole while backing up, these are even minor instances that can damage the driveline. This type of collision creates extensive shock and unexpected pressure on the driveline that can be catastrophic.
Not enough lubrication
Lubrication is key when it comes to your driveline. This part of the vehicle is constantly moving and needs to be well lubricated at all times. Using the wrong lube or even simple neglect can result in driveline damage.
